is spenning about $2 million in pennsylvania and romney and his allies are spending $11 million. pennsylvania is going to go for romney. he is 3 points ahead now. those 20 electoral votes will put him over the top, long before we call the 18 in ohio. >> greta: all right. let me ask but ohio. all the polls are neck and neck so they are tied. so tell me why those polls are not to be public believed and why listening to you, we should think you are right in calling ohio? >> because the polls that are out there, for example, the times/cbs poll interviewed 38% democrats and 29% of their sample are republicans. about an 8 or 9-point democratic advantage. now in 2008, there was an 8-point democratic advantage, that's a good sample for the '08 election. but in '04, there was a 4-point republican advantage. if you take '04, '06, '08 and 'steb, you get equal democrats and republicans in the sample. so if you believe there will be a huge turnout among minorities and young people, that the enthusiasm is undiminnished and they will be there like in 'where are 8, believe that poll. but all the evidence sug
them. >> obama kept that promise and pennsylvania coal paid the price. romney's energy plan is different. >> by the way, i like coal. >> people in the coal industry feel like it's getting crushed by the bollsies. i want to get america and north america energy independent to create jobs. >> the pushback questions romney's credibility on this issue. the president on the stump. >> the governor, stood in front of a coal fired plant. and said this plant kills people. now he is running around, talking like he is mr. coal. >> at the second debate, the president said this. there we made the largest investment in clean coal technology to make sure that as we produce more coal we produce it cleaner ard smarter. >> coal employment was higher than when he took office but coal production dropped three years ago to remain lower than when he was president. the number of coal jobs is half of what it was 30 years ago. the critics like james inhof of oklahoma see a president epa determined to shut the coal industry down. >> the evidence of that is the utilities are ending the contract as a re
. >> romney's final 96-hour sprint takes him to new hampshire, colorado. sunday to iowa, pennsylvania, virginia. monday to florida, virginia, ohio, and new hampshire. romney argues big change requires bipartisan and the president has been scapegoating. >> i won't waste time complaining about my predecessor. i won't spend my efforts try to pass partisan legislation unrelated to economic growth. from day one i'll go to work to help americans get back to work. >> senate democratic majority leader harry reid in a statement fired back. "mitt romney's fantasy that senate democrats will work to pass his conservative agenda is laughable." romney blasted the president's agenda as little more than big government at expense of the private sector. >> if the president is re-elected he will promote government dapped mote business. i like business. i don't see it as a necessary evil. >> in the extraordinarily close race, romney strategists dismiss any threat from two other little known candidates. libertarian candidate gary johnson, former governor of new mexico, barry registers in polls but could t
, maybe romney does have some momentum. think minnesota, michigan and pennsylvania. but then you have to look at the campaign body language and it's hard not to con chewed that r romney's campaign is acting as if they believe they are behind at least when it comes to the state of ohio. for starters, the romney campaign likely would not be airing this controversial jeep ad if they believe they were winning. both chrysler and gm are firing back at romney. chrysler ceo said in a statement jeep assembly lines will remain in operation in the united states and will con sstitute th backbone of the grand. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. a gm spokesman told the detroit news, quote, we've clearly enter ed some parallel universe during the last few days, no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish the record of creating jobs in the united states. remember, this new romney jeep ad claims that all factual statements in it, the implication is different, but the statements themselves say jeep is being built in china, which the ad says for the implication, of cou
. this is not 16 days it's six days. >> the romney campaign put out a memo about pennsylvania. >> absolutely. >> let me ask mark akbout pennsylvania. i was there last week. the republicans saying we can do this, we can win pennsylvania, democrats saying it's not even in play. what is your assessment? >> well the obama campaign needs pennsylvania to win. the romney campaign doesn't. i don't think they would be wasting the money in pennsylvania on the republican side if they thought they had no chance or at least a chance to distract the democrats. if the romney campaign went on the air in new york, i don't think the obama campaign would feel compelled to match the dollars there. if the obama campaign went on the air in texas tv i don't think the romney campaign would feel the need to go there. the vice president had a trip planned there means they're a little worried. republicans are doing two things at once, not just the romney campaign but outside groups, trying to put pressure on the president to defend turf like minnesota, and to move resources including candidate time away from ohio but
of reasons. one, they said listen, mitt romney hasn't been beaten about the head in pennsylvania on the air as he has in so many of these other states. two, it's down to a four-point race according to some of these polls. and three, they've got as much up in some of these swing states as they possibly can put up in terms of ads. they've got the ground game covered and they figured that pennsylvanias will vote on election day. >> i agree. i talked with the senior romney adviser about this yesterday and i said pennsylvania, what are you doing in pennsylvania? if they didn't feel they were covered in every other state, we're used to campaigns sort of allocating resources saying we're running out of money. that's not the case this time. there are extra resources. so if you look at their, at internal polls which show the race sort of three to five points somewhere, it would be malpractice if they didn't actually just go in and -- as someone said, it's like buying a lottery ticket. you might as well and see. >> look at where they're spending. both of these candidates tomorrow and monday. obama is
's pennsylvania. the romney camp made a $120,000 ad buy yesterday and three super pacs supporting romney have poured $6 million into pennsylvania just this week. why, you might ask? well, it's all part of their plan to quote, expand the electoral map. the president is up by four points in pennsylvania and they are still pouring all of that money into it. the poll out today was a franklin and marshall poll. and david axelrod placed an interesting range isser on whether the participate would take minnesota, michigan or pennsylvania. >> i will shave off my mustache if we lose any of those states. >> jennifer: that put david axelrod on the side of the american mustache lobby. and the american mustache institute put out a statement saying, quote . . . >> jennifer: all kidding aside, the -- honestly -- the very serious nate silver now predicts the president has a 78.4% chance of winning the election. nate silver looks at this huge mess of polls and pulls out which have historically been the most reliable and weighs them based on their representtive sample, and weighs them base
they have to say? from the indication of yard signs, i feel it romney win in my bones in pennsylvania. what say you? guest: the gentleman refers to an exceptionally difficult time, to put it mildly, four pennsylvania lawmakers where we have a large number being prosecuted by both the federal government and the attorney general of the state. the governor, when he was attorney general. this state has historically had problems among its public officials. having said that, i think the presidential election is viewed differently by the voters. they are not going to go back, for the most part, and say my state senator was indicted for public corruption charges, therefore i will not vote for president obama. i do not think that calculus those in to the presidential elections, at least when we talk to voters. they're quite capable of separating the two. in pennsylvania, we also have higher levels of partisanship than we do in many other states. it is still a state rooted in heavy partisanship. the big exception to that is the philadelphia suburbs, a lehigh valley, and there are areas of the state w
that the romney campaign is trying to expand a little bit, and now they're advertising in pennsylvania. at this point that's probably too little too late, and part of that is because the storm has gotten in the way. of course, people in pennsylvania are affected by it who won't pay attention it to the new campaign ads. i'm not sure if that was a wise investment by the romney campaign at this point late in the race. >> let me play what bill clinton had to say. he was in minneapolis, minnesota where the polls, 47/44, president obama with 47%. let me play a little bit of former president bill clinton, please. >> if those experts are right and we're going to get 12 million more jobs based on what he's already done, i think the guy who should be at the helm is the person whose policies created those jobs to give us a more perfect union. >> chris, there is former president bill clinton talking about jobs, which we know the is the most important thing right now in this race. the economy and recovery here. is a message like that affectefe with all the haze going on right now? should is that ar
candidates think are important, both mitt romney and paul ryan going to pennsylvania. that state. does that mean you're in trouble there in pennsylvania? >> no. i think it means the romney/ryan campaign is desperate to try to figure out how to win this race outside of the states that they've been contesting for 15 months. i think that's all pennsylvania is for the romney/ryan campaign. john mccain spent the last weekend in 2008 in pennsylvania in a desperate attempt to do this as well. >> the president he is making three stops in wisconsin, though. that is a state, however, that in maps that the president's campaign manager has shown us months ago was in the safe category for the president. why does the president need to spend so much time in wisconsin in these final days? >> what the president wants to do in these last stops, as you heard him on the video there, is present the case one last time in front of people in wisconsin. we want to show people we're moving this country forward and moving this economy forward. >> that's a safe state, why is the president spending his vital time
'm going to throw pennsylvania back here because pennsylvania is a state where they said romney is going in there. position of strength or weakness? >> i'd go for weakness. i think not quite hail mary, but somewhere in that neighborhood. >> and i'll let you jump in on pennsylvania. i want to show you why pen opinion might matter to them. if you don't believe ohio works for romney, and you take out -- if you give them -- if he gets pennsylvania and ohio, he doesn't need virginia and it's at 277. but if you take pennsylvania away, that's the way to prevent that. >> every year from republicans, philadelphia, pittsburgh, alabama and in between, you turn out pittsburgh, you turn out philly, democrats have 1.1 million advantage in registration. >> why is sunday better spent in pennsylvania and not ohio? >> president is in wisconsin. romney will be in pennsylvania. we're going to win huge out west. he's going to go in and target independents who are breaking remarkably to the romney campaign. it's a good use of time. tom corbitt thinks we can do it. so do i. >> jennifer horn at the patch.com th
of headlines say that since mitt romney is going to pennsylvania, that must mean that pennsylvania is in play. from the numbers, do you believe pennsylvania is in play? >> you had the list of 24 polls and none had romney ahead. some were done that had romney up a couple points there, but no public pollster has had him with a lead all year. it's not just that obama is up there, but it's a state where it's been stable and consistent in the polling. i think it might be more in play because i don't think they are conceding ohio. they need a better plan b. >> is there a famous circumstance in which all the polls all yearlong point in one direction and a partisan poll correctly predicted the results? >> that poll is almost always going to be wrong. especially when there's a consensus of 20 polls. maybe in a house race where the public polls aren't as good. but the public polling is pretty good. we know what the party bases are and where they live. this is a state that teases republicans where they can get up to 49% pretty easily, but it's hard to get to 50%. unless because of the hurricane and wher
with rick it will be tighter than that. i don't see romney winning, pennsylvania. i think he has got to win, ohio. the problem for romney is numbers among hispanics very poor. they were aiming for 38% of hispanics and they are in the low 20s now. can he win in the midwest where there aren't a lot of hispanics? yes. he has to win, ohio, and virginia and he has got to win florida. >> i think we are heading into a 2004 nail biter. look at the polls in ohio, today barack obama is almost exactly where george w. bush was in the polls in ohio 8 years ago. look at the job approval ratings, barack obama's job approval rating is almost exactly where george w. bush's approval rating is. the only thing looking better for romney at this point is obama is worse off in the polls. george w. bush had a 1.5 percentage-point lead going into election day and right now it is even. >> greta: rick what is the best thing politically that governor romney is looking at right now, when looks at this and what is the best thing politically president obama is looking at when they look at what is winding down between now
two dozen polls in pennsylvania since august first. of those two dozen polls, of those 24 polls, how many does president obama lead in? 24 of the 24. every single one. and look at the rest of mr. romney's campaign schedule. he's taking the one trip to pennsylvania that republicans always take. but other than that, he was in ohio and wisconsin today. he was scheduled to be in new hampshire, iowa and colorado in the final days. and he just spent the last couple days in florida and virginia. that means the map is not expanding. no the if you can't afford to walk away from any battle ground states. he's still flogging it out where he has to win. all of this we're going to win stuff is a fake out, it's a bluff, it's trash talk. and there's nothing wrong with it. it happens every year. you should know it's a dependable part of the end of presidential campaigns. but every once in awhile at the end of a presidential campaign, this expected faint, this attempt at a fake out that everybody knows is coming, every once in awhile it's revealed as a fake out. every once in awhile you get from the
on yesterday, htom ridge on yesterday, he said governor romney could win pennsylvania, not surprising coming from a surrogate that he would feel that way. the fact he is spending time there is a very interesting point. perhaps pennsylvania is also in play and perhaps that suggests that the romney camp feels that they feel confident about ohio. >> reporter: well, no, here is the deal. the obama camp says they don't feel confident about ohio, that they realize they can't get over-the-top in ohio and so they are looking for some other place to scramble the electoral map, so they are looking at pennsylvania, looking at michigan, looking at minnesota. they see it as a sign of desperation. the romney camp says absolutely not. it's a sign that the race is closing all over the country. at this point having the 74th rally in ohio isn't going to move a lot of voters. having the first rally in pennsylvania in months could move voters. in terms of bang for the buck they think they have more impact in pennsylvania. look, in the end, somebody is spinning, somebody isn't, we'll find out on tuesday who is b
to be easily in the president's win column. the romney campaign is making a late push to take pennsylvania. the republicans are spending three million dollars on campaign ads there and romney will visit the state on sunday. now, let's look at the markets right now. you can see that the dow is down just by 100 points. stock gave up that early gain despite a decent jobs report. that job is being attributed to traders assessing the potential costs of superstorm sandy. back to the campaign, president obama's camp is calling the gop's effort in pennsylvania an act of desperation. but the democrats plan to increase their spending on political ads in the state. reporting live in the newsroom, cate caugiran, cbs 5. >>> support is growing to end california's death penalty. but backers of prop 34 still lack the majority needed to pass it. a new field poll shows 45% of california voters support the measure. that would make life in prison without parole the most severe punishment for state offenders. 38% say they oppose the measure while nearly one in five voters remains undecided. >>> the latest fiel
is former pennsylvania governor and msnbc political analyst ed rendell and romney campaign economic adviser vin weber. ed rendell, you've been a leader in times of crisis as a governor. what about the way mike bloomberg and the president and the other leaders, chris christie have handled this emergency? >> generally it's been terrific across the board. the mayor, the governor, the president, don't forget governor malloy in connecticut, governor markle in dell, our own governor governor corbett, government has responded very well and learned an important example for americans government does matter, we want an effective government, not big or small, it's effective government. we want it. i think we've seen it in action the past day at the state, local and federal levels. >> is this now all a turnout election, vin webber, when you and ed rendell as pros look at this, you're a former member of congress, will anything change it? the jobs report is pretty much a wash. will the failure of fema to go to staten island and help the people in hoboken as quickly as they responded on the jersey shore o
will be in colorado, ohio, iowa, and virginia, while romney will also be making a stop in pennsylvania and new hampshire. and it is taking some voters up to four hours to cast their ballots in florida. one of the election's most crucial swing states. remember, early voting in florida started a week later than it did in 2008 because of a new state law. the republican state legislature reduced the number of early voting days from 14 down to 8. there are just three days left until election day and the presidential race is pretty darn tight. the candidates are making a final push through the swing states, looking for any advantage along the way. joining me now to talk about the president's final flurry is the national communications director for the obama campaign. brent, good morning. thanks for being here with us. tell me, what is the strategy for these last three days? >> look, for this last push, it's pretty simple. we want to be as many places as we can, as many times as we can before people cast that last ballot when the polls close on election night. so the president's out there campaigning
in pennsylvania. a big play there five days leading into this election. romney's super pac restore our future made a $2 million ad buy. the koch brothers, americans for prosperity, bought $3 million to date and the romney campaign has made $120,000 ad buy the day before the election and election day itself. but the latest poll in pennsylvania shows obama 49 and romney 43. >> it's really about a five-point race and you can't make up five points in a week, especially because there's so much clutter on tv with all of the other candidates, it's hard to break through. if romney had gone on the air in pennsylvania the day after the first debate and stayed on the air at 5, $6 million a week for the four weeks, he might have had a chan of sneaking in. but he hasn't been in the state very much. ryan was in the state once. this buy for one week is truly a hail mary pass. what they figured out is that ohio is gone and they can't make the electoral map and that's why they are in michigan and pennsylvania and in minnesota. they've got to pull out one or two of those states to have a chance and i don't think th
are really enthused. >> heather: romney has added another state into the mix, pennsylvania, hoping to end the streak of five contests where the democratic candidate prevailed and 10 percentage points in the latest polls show him with a slight edge over governor romney. how realistic is pennsylvania? >> i still think pennsylvania is a strep for the romney campaign. that being said, president obama and his campaign has spent the last week trying to convince everybody that the move into pennsylvania by the romney campaign is a complete head shake. i am not convinced how tough it is for mitt romney. you notice that bill clinton will be in pennsylvania on monday. aside from president obama the former president is the best surrogate his campaign has. bill clinton is going to be in pennsylvania on monday, the fact that obama campaign has spent more money on television in pennsylvania suggest there is some concern that the race has pulled closer than the obama folks thought it it could would be. >> heather: and storm sandy and jobs report. last one that came out on friday? >> these are both hard

are going to have both romney and rhein in separate occasions in pennsylvania this weekend, suggest that they take this seriously. you don't go to a state and two days before an election unless you think there's potential. >> paul: let's take a president obama ad attacking mitt romney in ohio. >> it's said that character is what we do when we think no one is looking. >> mitt romney thought no one was looking when he attacked 47% of americans, his company shipped jobs overseas, his plan cuts millionaires taxes, but raises yours. he'll voucherize medicare and make catastrophic cuts to education. so remember what romney said and what his name would do. >> paul: taking our name in vein, the 15th time, the wall street journal does not agree with any of the-- >> what do you think? >> this is a-- this is a distilled message (laughter) of the campaign. >> he keeps returning to this class warfare theme and this is in ohio and thinks the outsourcing, hitting the rich. 47% plays well with less educated white men in the midwest and where he's focusing ads. >> paul: is that really a good closing
surprise states that romney might pick up that aren't on the radar, minnesota, pennsylvania? >> those are a stretch. the ones that we really need to go for romney are virginia and colorado which are just incredibly close with of course, new hampshire and ohio, he wins those, he will probably pull it out. >> thanks, appreciate you being here. still with all 135 seats in the house up for reelection, does either party stand to win big or lose big on tuesday? our panel is back to tell you next.

hampshire four votes. pennsylvania 20 votes, romney 2 ahead. ohio 18 votes. they are tied. iowa 6 votes, they are tied. wisconsin ten votes, they are are tied. michigan 15 votes, romney is one behind. minnesota 16 votes. romney is three behind. nevada 9 votes and romney s two behind. in all of those states obama is under 50. and so since we are going to get three quarters or four fifths of the undecided vote for romney i think romney has a good chance to win all those states but he is certainly going to win at least one so he is going to get at least the 15 votes. this business that everybody should hang on what happens in ohio is ridiculous. he could lose ohio and carry either pennsylvania or minnesota or michigan and wisconsin or new hampshire and iowa and win the election. and it is ridiculous to say that everything hinges on ohio. ohio is proving more in tractable and more dead even. but i believe that if you look at the polls in iowa they have many -- too many democrats and too few republicans and proper polls in iowa would show romney one or two points ahead. but frankly my view,
believe at this point that governor romney can win pennsylvania? >> of course, he can. republicans don't never win it. in 2010 they elected five new republican congressmen, a republican senator, a republican governor and republican majorities in both houses of the legislature. what more has a state got to do? i think he will win, pennsylvania, and i think he will win wisconsin and i think he has a very good chance of winning in michigan. of course, all of this preis supposes that the other side doesn't steal it which is something we need to work on. >> greta: ground game. level of importance between now and november 6 is what? >> very important. the republicans lost four senate seats in 2010 because they didn't have a good ground game. and the democrats and the unions outworked them. now, i think the republicans have don't the message and are working like crazy on the ground making millions of phone calls and home visits. it is incredible. i go out every day and i'm amazed by what they are doing. i learned yesterday or two days ago, greta, that the united nations has decided to send in
in florida. could go either way. but it's for sure romney's need to win state. >> okay, pennsylvania now with you, perry. the romney camp appears to be making a play for that state, spending about $10 million in ad right now. mitt romney is adding a stop there tomorrow. paul ryan will be there today. there are a lot of theories on why his camp is doing this. what's your take, perry? >> my theory is they're struggling in ohio so much they have to try to make a play somewhere else. the president probably can't win the elections without winning pennsylvania. that said he's been leading in every poll in pennsylvania throughout this race. romney hasn't campaigned in pennsylvania up until now. last ditch effort a little desperate i think. but it shows you the challenge they're having in ohio where the president has maintained the lead throughout this race and no republican has ever won without winning ohio. that's why they're looking for other options, the romney campaign i need. >> can i talk about the unemployment numbers, jobs numbers out friday richard with you. they show it did tick up .1
turnout for the president and help mitt romney in pennsylvania which i've always thought, including today, i'm not really sure even with this push in there if mitt romney is going to win, maybe. it's all going to be at the margins if it helps or hurt anybody, even in a tight race i'm not so sure it's going to matter very much. >> good to have the conversation. thank you, gentlemen. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> what do presidential candidates promise in a state where unemployment is below the national average? well, more jobs, of course, but the pitch has left some voters more than a little skeptical. customer erin swenson bought from us online today. so, i'm happy. sales go up... i'm happy. it went out today... i'm happy. what if she's not home?
